In a recent development that has ignited heated debates both online and offline, Nigerian crossdresser James Brown has stepped forward to condemn the individuals who were apprehended for their alleged involvement in a same-sex wedding ceremony. The incident took place in Delta State, where authorities detained a group of young men suspected of participating in the prohibited event.
James Brown, who gained prominence after his own arrest for reportedly attending a gay event in Lagos back in 2018, expressed his disapproval in a video posted on his Instagram account. He asserted that those implicated in the event should have adhered to the country’s legal framework and refrained from organizing a gay wedding.
The controversy arose when the group of suspected homosexuals was apprehended during the celebration of a same-sex wedding at a hotel located in Delta State. The subsequent parade of these individuals at the police headquarters in Asaba, Delta State, on Wednesday, August 29, not only attracted considerable attention on various social media platforms but also triggered a spectrum of reactions from both ordinary Nigerians and prominent figures.
Interestingly, this incident also drew commentary from another notable figure, Bobrisky. The controversial internet personality, who is renowned for his gender-bending persona and open embrace of his LGBTQ+ identity, did not mince words in chastising the individuals involved in attempting a gay wedding in a country where such an act remains illegal.
